I— Alfona (lew*) Advamt MONDAY, JULY 10, 1967 Seen at the ALGONA By T. H. C. The dnema column has been rather sporatic during the past few weeks, but I have managed to review, for my own pleasure (or indifference), most of the offerings at the local trcalre. In justice to the movies, 1 must admit that seven o'clock usually finds me in the garden tending to my petunias while the second show interferes with my reading habits. While I'm not a patron of the Starlite Drive-In, I imagine that most of the entertainment proceedings are in full blast out on highway 18, at least that was the "pic- lure" when I visited the place last season. With these preliminaries, we may now proceed to the business at hand, namely the offerings at the Algona. Briefly, How To Succeed in Business was the outstanding picture of the month. Those who missed this little "gem" missed a real entertainment special. No violence, no killing and jusl enough sex to make it interesting. I saw Devils Angels which you may imagine was not my cup of tea. Paul Nawman's Hombre was a complete "loss" in my book and .showed our popular idol at a new "low". His portrayal of the injustice to the Indian cause left me very cold. Funeral in Berlin, featuring another current screen idol, left me confused as usual and altho I saw the film in Minneapolis and also locally, I haven't the faintest idea of what it was all about. That's not a criticism of the picture, merely an evidence of my own shortcomings when the plot is a mystery which it remains to the very end. Unless the good guys wear white hats and the bad ones wear black, I'm at a complete loss. Penelope, with Natalie Wood wasn't anything to write home about either, I wish they'd give this cute little "trick" something to work with— a real story. July started out promisingly. I found Elvis Presley's Easy Come, Easy Go an entertaining and well made film with some outstanding under sea scenes. Since Elvis discontinued his pelvis shaking gy- 1 rations and concentrated on his singing and acting— he's not a Spencer Tracy or a Richard Burton— he gets by well enough. If they gave Bob Hope a good plot and appointed him the undisputed comic his pictures would have more appeal. This is his forte but it always seems wasted when teamed with such an unappetizing "dish" as Phyllis Diller. If you can digest Phyllis, Eight On A Lam, may please you. I haven't seen Caprice with Doris Day and the reviews are varied, so see this one merely to get away from TV, then anything is better. While I'm not completely antagonistic towards the "idiot tube", I'll have co admit that even a bad movie is better than the re-runs that we're ge'ttinn over TV. This brings us to Up The Down Staircase which is so new and current that I have found few reviews to base an opinion on. 1 believe it's rated as a very good picture. I have saved the best for the last. War Wagon, showing here Sunday thru Wednesday July 9-12 is one of the best westerns made for a long time and rates my unreserved approval. It boasts a stellar cast, headed by veterans John Wayne and Kirk Douglas and is right down any dyed in the wool western addicts alley. A good rootin', toptin', shootin' film— don't miss this one. I had intended to include excerpts from the Harvard 'Lampoons, 28th annual Movie Worst issue but space has run out. This yearly feature of the famed college publication is pure satire but makes interesting reading, whether you agree with the conclusion or not. I hope to see you more regularly from now on. Organist 'Miss Lucia Roggman, B. A., B. M. of Garnavillo was honored on the occasion of her 65th anniversary as organist of the St. Paul Ev. Lutheran Church there. Many of the clergy and members of the congregations were in Garnavillo to extend greetings and commendation to Miss Roggman for her faithful and unselfish service.
